. >> cenk: well, that would happen with the debt ceiling but that wouldn't happen with the fiscal cliff, would it, michael? >> well, you never know. i'm not going to take the position other than people i've talked to, but a lot of them said hey you know, i'm worried about this because the economy is very fragile. when you start pulling defense spending and other things out of that economy who really knows? now. >> cenk: no, no, i would take that chance in a second. you're telling me i'm going to continue this bloated defense spending for the rest of time because it might hurt the economy? what about spending on the poor and middle class. nobody is concerned about that when we pull that out. oh that's fine. that wouldn't hurt the economy. that makes no sense. i'm afraid it's a lot of conservative framing and the president has bought into a lot of it, that even the tougher president obama is not that much of a progressive to begin with. >> well, i think the fascinating thing when you watch the program is the extent whatever they believe and wherever that is coming from and whatever the policies

debt ceiling which is going to come up quickly in the new year and has been postponed to may 19. we also have a sequestration that was postponed for two months and that is coming back at the end of february. we govern by c.r., we have a continuing resolution debate coming up on or before the 27th of march. we have spread these crisis out over the first half of the year. that is difficult for the economy to manipulate. as we started to see fundamental improvement else, where we will see refocusing on the inability of our government to come to terms with its spending, taxes, and debt and deficits. that will continually, i believe, rival markets and call into question the optimistic factors we're seeing. i would like to call the panel up here. we're going to start going through -- we're going to do john first -- excuse me. we're going to do frank first on the housing then john then bob. we will try to keep everything on schedule and get out of here at 10:30. thank you >> thank you, marty. i want to thank the foundation for hosting the event here today and inviting me here. i have slide
